The College of Engineering and Computer Science at Florida Atlantic University promotes diversity through a strong advocacy program, a mentor/protégé program, multicultural faculty and staff members, student professional societies (such as SHPE), targeted scholarships, research opportunities (such as Latin American Grid), co-ops, and bilingual tutors.
The College also conducts recruitment efforts that target culturally diverse and traditionally underrepresented populations. In addition, we are headquarters for LACCEI, the Latin American and Caribbean Consortium of Engineering Institutions, and we offer scholarships and in-state tuition rates to qualified graduate students from Latin America and the Caribbean.
